A beautifully elegant antique 9ct gold neoclassical brooch set with a beautiful Italian carved shell cameo of Flora, goddess of flowers.
The brooch is a bar style and solidly constructed so it is a fairly substantial piece. The cameo is beautifully carved and is engraved on the back with the carvers signature but only an 'M' is visible. A sturdy pin back with a curly c-clasp completes this lovely quality piece, a beautiful cameo brooch hailing from the bygone era of elegance.
